LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — United Airlines will begin offering a daily non-stop flight to Denver beginning Aug. 19.

The Lafayette Airport Commission said Wednesday that there will be one arriving flight from Denver and one departure from Lafayette in a 50-seater plane.

Director of Aviation Greg Roberts told The Advertiser the new flight will benefit all Lafayette flyers, especially those in the oil industry as it provides faster and easier access to Western and Midwestern states.

The addition of Denver makes Lafayette a hub for four cities, including Atlanta, Houston and Dallas. United currently has 10 flights to Houston each day out of Lafayette.
